Which type of dog breeds do not shed?

All dogs with hair shed at least a little. But the terrier type dogs and some of the shorthaired breed do not shed as much as many other types of dogs. Also, the "hairless" dogs have very little to shed!

The American Kennel Club and a number of other pet interest websites have information on all the breeds, including the amount of shedding you can expect.
